The first child of an Obindu-Umuoma family, Nduka believes that education is a means of achieving both individual and community emancipation. His father dies from a snakebite while sleeping in his farm tent and he faces the temptation to change his identity in order to belong, but he perseveres like a Saharan camel and chooses instead to acquire education in the tropical South and temperate North. His desire to acquire academic knowledge increases at each turn because most normal human brains abhor inactivity but prefer the eventful path of information storage and dissemination. Although the later dominates in both poles (South and North), he wishes passionately to share his newfound ideas with the Umuoma people. During this search for knowledge and a means of propagating the same, his heart hosts hope and he becomes overwhelmed by memories of Southern realities, which feed him with ample doses of Northern dreams.
